about

Glitterball Vegas was recorded in 2003 at Glasgow's Carlton Studios. Stylistically it flirts through territories explored by the likes of Pearl Jam, The Afghan Whigs, Stone Temple Pilots and Queens of the Stone Age.

While the album could be purchased at gigs, it was never made widely available. The track-list and artwork here differ from those on the original CD version.

Track Name: Fall of a Superhero
It's closing time; the bars are closed but I need a drink.
I need somewhere to rest. Lay my head.
I need some time to think.
And they say "oh no, there he goes again.
oh no, he's gone too soon"

I was on my way to save a jumbo jet plane when the lightening struck.
Do you think I could fly with a hole in my cape and a graze in my arm?
And they say "oh no, there he goes again.
oh no, he's gone too soon"

And they say "oh no, there he goes again.
oh no, he's gone too soon"

Well the plane fell down. Down to the ground.
There was nothing I could do.
I was dazed.
The public turned away and dragged me down in the news.
And they say "oh no, there he goes again.
oh no, he's gone too soon"

I had to leave. Had to hide. No more saving the public from harm.
That fall from grace.
There's a hole in my cape and a flaw in my charm.
And they say "oh no, there he goes again.
oh no, he's gone too soon"
Track Name: I Think I'm In Love
I made my way back home to the city tonight.
She said "you look pretty good"
I said "I'm feeling alright"
You know I was away when I was down on my luck
But now baby I'm home I just wanna go fuck.
I think I love you.
I said I might love you.

I was away so long it was like being in Hell.
What do you mean "do you still love me? can't you tell"
You look so pretty and I look a mess
and you got me turned on before I got you undressed
I think I love you.
I said I might love you.

I said I might love you.
I think I might love you.

I was down so long that I forgot how to fall
You said "when you're back can you just give me a call?"
"and if you're late then just ring the bell"
Y'know, you're never too late, cause Hell is a hotel
I think I love you.
I said I love you.
Track Name: Poison
It wasn't too long ago the World was in danger.
I decided to leave and become a ninja warrior.
I was trained in the arts by the ancient Master Nakazawa.
He said "you gotta be tough; this could be your finest hour"

I don't need no money.
I don't need no poison.
Take me back honey.
... back to New Orleans.

The first wave of attack came in the form of ninja rats.
We fought them off at the gates with stones and baseball bats.
The Evil Worrell spoke; he said "do you know who I am?"
I looked him in the eye and said "I don't give a damn".

I don't need no money.
I don't need no poison.
Take me back honey.
... back to New Orleans.

The second wave it came in the form of flying monkeys.
They had James Brown records and they were very funky
I swooped low with a sword and I chopped off their wings
I looked them in the eye and said "jump back! I wanna kiss myself"

I don't need no money.
I don't need no poison.
Take me back honey.
... back to New Orleans.

When the war was over I asked "can we do it again?"
Master Nakazawa said "patience James-san"
The Evil Worrell turned his back but said "I will return"
"I shall command a great army and the World will burn!"

I don't need no money.
I don't need no poison.
Take me back honey.
... back to New Orleans.
Track Name: Scared Tiger
Don't wait for your ship to come in.
Swim out to it.
Blinded by the sun.
Hold your hands out.
I have love and I have faith.
and I have swam so many lands.
Just so I could be the one who was there to lead the way.

Scared Tiger doesn't want to meet you, babe
Scared Tiger doesn't wanna eat you
Scared Tiger doesn't want to meet you
I'm so very scared

Darlin' I took you're hand.
Led you away.
You looked me in the eye and said you understand.
What I was saying.
I have love and I have faith.
and I have swam so many lands.
Just so I could be the one who was there to take your place.

Scared Tiger doesn't want to meet you, babe
Scared Tiger doesn't wanna eat you
Scared Tiger doesn't want to meet you
He's so very scared
Track Name: Apple of My Eye
Lying in the corner next to you,
I was looking pretty sharp and you were looking cool.
Looking out the window what do I see?
I see a butterfly staring back at me.
Nothin' in the World I wouldn't do to keep my smiling face looking over at you.
You are the apple of my eye
You are the brightest star.
Songbird in the sky

It was the brightest day when you come my way
I want to hear you breathe.
I want to feel you next ...

Wake me in the morning when it comes.
I wanna see the sunshine shining in
You are the apple of my eye
You are the brightest star.
Songbird in the sky

It was the brightest day when you come my way
I want to hear you breathe.
I want to feel you next to me

When the light came and shot me down
I was alone for a little while.
You came in like my lucky charm
Picked me up when I fell down.

It was the brightest day when you come my way
I want to hear you breathe.
I want to feel you next to me

Apple of my eye that's what you are.
You are my buttercup
You're my shining star.
You don't come here next to me.
We'll set sail on the misty sea
Track Name: Whistle of a Distant Train
I hear the whistle of a distant train.
It's come to save me.
Come to save me.

I see a glimmer as I trudge in the rain.
It's come to save me.
Come to save me.

Breathe on.
Wont you breathe on?
Have faith.

I hear the whisper of a long lost friend.
He's come to save me.
He's come to save me.

I hear the singing of the birds in the rain.
They've come to save me.
Come to save me.

Breathe on.
Wont you breathe on?
Have faith.

I think it's about time that I helped myself.
If I can't help myself how can anyone else?
I think it's about time that I helped myself.
If I can't help myself how can anyone else?

Wont you breathe on?
Have faith.
Track Name: Y.
Cards down on the table (all you have ... all you are)
Life in a bubble (I feel better now I can feel again)
You know life is better like this (all you want all you have)
When you're willing and able (brace yourself for the fall)
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone.
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone.
One more time gonna make a new friend.
Oh, my Y.

Cut up the dance floor (all you have ... all you have)
Like we're in trouble (here they come ... they're going to get away)
I'm walking a straight line, honey (all you have ... all you are)
For all that you adore (all you have ... put yourself into the fold)
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone (it's not like it was before)
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone.
One more time gonna make a new friend.
Oh, my Y.

No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone (it's not like it was before)
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone.
One more time gonna make a new friend.
Oh, my Y.

Comin' round again now (all you have ... all you are)
You're like an army (you will recognise me ... you won't harm me)
Showin' up on radar (you're radioactive ... like a bright star)
Gotta exit left (brace yourself for the fall)
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone (it's not like it was before)
No, I won't sleep tonight.
I won't go out alone.
One more time gonna make a new friend.
Oh, my Y.
Track Name: Big Time Fashion Magazine
I see a little picture of you and in it you look so fine.
You call me up when you're alone.
I did not ask for your time.

I don't know why you come round here
I don't know why you come round.
I don't know why you come round
When I don't want you around.
I don't know why you come round.
I don't know why you come round
I don't know why you come round
When I don't want you around.

Where did your head go?
I just don't know

It was the morning after you walked in just like something out of a big-time fashion magazine

I don't know why you come round here
I don't know why you come round.
I don't know why you come round
When I don't want you around.
I don't know why you come round
I don't know why you come round
I don't know why you come round
When I don't want you around.

Where did your head go?
I just don't know

... you look like something from a movie.
Track Name: I Am An Ocean
I am an ocean.
I am the one.
I am the sea in which you sail.
I am the lover you hold in your arms.
I always thought love would prevail.

There is a left in your eyes.
There is a left in your eyes.
There is a left in your eyes.
Hold on to me and don't you cry

Hold on to me
(tell me: what does it really matter?)
You can be my Queen
(...whether your ship comes in)
Hold on to me
(... does it really matter?)

I was standing on the edge looking down on you when you flew away
If I could walk this cold grey sky I'd turn this night to day

There is a left in your eyes.
There is a left in your eyes.
There is a left in your eyes.
Hold on to me and don't you cry

Hold on to me
(tell me: what does it really matter?)
You can be my Queen
(...whether your ship comes in)
Hold on to me
(... does it really matter?)
Hold on to me
(tell me: what does it really matter?)
You can be my Queen
(...whether your ship comes in)
Hold on to me
(... does it really matter?)
Track Name: Dancing Cats on Polaroid
Satan says I'm paranoid.
I'm still looking for a safe place to land my ship.
Dancing cats on polaroid.
I'm an island.
I'm making ice-picks out of mountains that I've climbed.

As the flames burn away I just want to leave this place.

Cold place will keep me strong.
We'll be faithful.
I was shaking hands with all those friends.
Foes are coming round to see me freeze here, but my body will preserve in this cold place

As the flames burn away I just want to leave this place.

Breathing heavy and I can't hold the line.
Stay till daybreak and I rise to the tide.

As the flames burn away I just want to leave this place.

I need a drink to stop these hands from shaking
Turning like a machine inside of you
I feel the surface spilling me on the ground
Pushing me up and pulling me down

As the flames burn away I just want to leave this place.
